CRC SHOP FOREMAN RECEIVES PRESTIGOUS AWARD
Classic Reflection Coachworks Shop Foreman, James Hilton is receiving the 2019 Dick Page Memorial Rodder Award at an awards Banquet in September 2019. This prestigious award is given by the Washington State Hot Rod Hall of Fame in honor of a Northwest hot rodding hero, Dick Page. It is awarded to a young person who has made a positive impact within the automotive industry.
James started as a mechanic with CRC in 2007 and has been instrumental in the production of several models of carbon fiber bodied Retro Vettes that look like the classic 50-60’s Corvette but with the performance and handling of a modern day performance sports car. He has performed at one time or another in all phases of the manufacture of these beautiful works of art that people can drive. From his first car love affair with his uncle’s 1967 big block Corvette at age 10 thru his personal journey of frame off restorations of most of the “C” Corvette models to three custom built motorcycles (one for his wife Jill in honor of her mom) you might say that James caught the automotive bug at a young age and still has it. While working with his uncle at Goodman Racing he worked on Corvettes, Ferraris, cobras and many others.
James attended Clover Park Technical College before meeting Doug Graf, one of the company’s owners, and going to work with CRC. James and the CRC staff is now busy building several versions of the latest CRC model, the iconic 1963 Split Window Retro Vette. Classic Reflection Coachworks is proud of James and respectful of his talents.
CRC owners, employees, and associates are passionate about building dreams for that exclusive group of automobile owners who would like to again see the iconic versions of America's Dream Sports Car driving across this great country.
